Excellent content, beautiful app that could use some work

EM:Rap came highly recommend, and the content really lives up to it. There are a lot of free medical education sources, but this is worth the money. Unfortunately, the app still holds it back a little (and it isn't a completely unusable app or anything). If these three things were resolved I'd definitely give it 5/5
Big kudos to the recent update that allowed in-app searching!
1) the most annoying thing that needs to be fixed is to change the lockscreen control to back and forward 15 seconds, not back and forward tracks. When I'm driving and listening and I miss something, I don't want the distraction of having to unlock my phone, open the app, open the player, and then hit back 15 seconds.
2) maybe it works for other people, but I haven't been able to view videos on the app. Even the mobile version of the website has a video option.
3) annoying, but the least of my concerns thus far, it isn't very good at remembering where I left off

Playback issues

The big problem with this app is the playback. It often forgets where it last stopped and rarely resumes at the correct spot. It doesn’t multitask well. If you keep it running in the background and play is interrupted for some reason, when you reopen the app it brings you to the homepage, not what’s currently playing. It would also be nice if the 15-second forward and back buttons were integrated into the control center of iOS, like Overcast does. Just study Overcast and that’s how playback should be! Great content and I like the written summaries, but certainly lots of room for improvement.

Tiny Font

As with most Apps and many sites, the Font is simply too small. Yep, you can note cone down, so no way to see without reading glasses! Good luck when the editors are 45. Could this be why Mel is no longer around, after all, he hit 50 a few years back, with much fan fare.

Another pet peeve along the same lines. Enough with grey color font and as pertains to this one, a lighter shade of red. Again, hard to read. B&W is the standard for a reason.

Secondly, agree with others, no way to search.

How about being able to create my own playlist for up coming drive?

Better apps exist out there, say Teaching Company, though they too use too small a font. Also, they use a white font on black background, actually the best. And you can erase old stuff.

Content is over the top though.
